Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

- Earth Science: Most of the Earth Science stuff was introduced at an advanced level. Even though explanations of underlying concepts (stress, strain, bending, etc) was provided, the presentation thereof seemed a bit messy (although the provided PDFs were very good!) and are hard to squeeze in ON TOP OF teaching the actual goals. Naturally, not everyone has a background in mechanics, but I feel that the explanation of the mechanics could be made better (simpler, maybe?).» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

5. Did the examination assess whether you have reached the goals?

- Astrophysics: Yes Earth Science: Only a subset thereof (since some goals were only touched briefly for lack of time) Also note that, for the astrophysics part, it was pretty clear what could be expected during the exam, this was not the case for the Earth Science part (regarding level of detail, recap of the homeworks, ...).» (To some extent)

- All litrature is of a high quality exept the compendium handouts.» (Large extent)
- Astrophysics book was somewhat redundant (in terms of course teachings) if all lectures were visited. The Earth Science hand-outs were VERY good. It would be nice to have had work of the same quality for the climate part (maybe get someone with expertise in the climate field to make those since I understand that HGS"s real field was the interior?), since I don"t think you should expect a student to buy a >500 SEK textbook for 2 weeks of course! (climate part).» (Large extent)

- Earth Sciences only: Groupwork (i.e., the presentations) always has some inherent problems with different levels of involvemtn from the different students, nothing that can be done about that though. Coorperation for the normal homework worked well though I felt.» (Rather well)

- the earth science teacher was terrible » (Adequate)
- The astrophysics part is taught very well and clear. The Earth Science part is messy, which seems to stem from the fact that both detail and the big picture from a wide field need to be addressed in such a short timeframe. I appreciated the detailed information, the homeworks and the presentation, but I suspect this might be because I had previous introductionary courses in Earth Sciences covering the "big picture". I can imagine students that never had a very general introduction course had problems. Sadly, I cannot offer remedies on this can be resolved except making the course longer.» (Adequate)
- Fair for Earh science part and excellent for Astrophysics part.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- There is nothing to change at the Astrophysics part (extreemly good). The homework and presentations are good exept HW1.»
- magnus, the astrophysics teacher»
- The astrophysics part as it is. Also the homeworks for Earth Science were very good to have as I probably learned more by doing them than by just studying!»
- the course was well organized so i think same course material should definitely be preserved next year.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- It is hard to comprehend the Earth science part, since only equationas prersentations. Try to explain the equations together with what they realy relate to. (what is this eguation used for), lessens the burden of equation derivations. (Hard to understand). Try also to get a more even load of geodysey and climate parts. It also could be good to explain what is expected from the homework before the first homework is presented. I got a little confused when the workburden was heavyer for the small homeworkes 1 & 2 then for the large homework 3 (presentation). Take away the lecture of who to present oraly, this aougth to been nown when you read three years in a university. For Astrophysics present the calculation excersies and formula help at the examination early in the course.»
- As before, the way Earth Sciences is presented at the moment, is not optimal. While the details are very interesting, I think the course should be at a more general and less detailed level if the time constraints cannot be resolved.»
- i should say something about earth science part.this part was very hard specially first couple of weeks for me because i didnot have any knowledge about plate tectonics and some other things.and from the very beginning of the course teacher was deeply into the course rather giving some basic concepts and over view of the course.i think most of the students faced the same problem.next year this particular thing should be considered.»

16. Additional comments

- There are some work to be done to get a good understanding for the earth sience part. Whoever the HW and pressentaton assignments gives some understanding of what this parts mean. The lectures by Magnus are extremly good (5).»
- Feel free to contact me if you want more input, I"m quite willing to make contributions to improve the course: volker@cheleb.net.»
- contents of "astrophysics and earth science" were huge.this was too big to cover everything and was difficult to take a good preparation before exm.»
